RAID Problem on SUSE 11.0

I setup a RAID 5 with 5 drives, one failed, hardware failure so I physically removed it from the raid after powering the machine off then powered it back on and my raid was still good but no 5th drive. I built a 5th drive from scratch and added it in the raid thinking the raid would go into recovery and add the new drive to replace the old one. It did do that BUT this is where I am at now: (sdb1 was the new one I added)

P.S. The /proc/mdstat file currently contains the following:

Personalities : [raid6] [raid5] [raid4]
md0 : active raid5 sda1[0] sdf1[5] sde1[3] sdd1[2] sdb1[6]
7813950976 blocks super 1.0 level 5, 128k chunk, algorithm 0 [5/4] [U_UUU]
[======================>] recovery =110.9% (1083725068/976743872) finish=3369970016313.0min speed=45615K/sec
bitmap: 102/466 pages [408KB], 2048KB chunk

unused devices: <none>

It is over 110% recovery and still going!!! What did I do wrong and can I stop it without destroying anything.

cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities : [raid6] [raid5] [raid4]
md0 : active raid5 sda1[0] sdf1[5] sde1[3] sdd1[2] sdb1[6]
7813950976 blocks super 1.0 level 5, 128k chunk, algorithm 0 [5/5] [UUUUU]
bitmap: 103/466 pages [412KB], 2048KB chunk
unused devices: <none>

Makes no sense to me I didn't know it could go over 100% in recovery Smilie


It's working fine now!
